Shortly before 6 a.M., a semitrailer skidded due to the snow-covered road and inappropriate speed. The trailer then flipped over to the left, blocking the left and center lanes in the direction of regensburg.
The 37-year-old driver of the vehicle was slightly injured. The overturned trailer, loaded with 20 tons of wood, had to be removed from the road by recovery vehicles called in.
Only 30 minutes later, a subsequent rear-end collision occurred as a result of the obstruction. The 28-year-old driver of a 33-ton truck hit the tractor-trailer (18-ton) in front of him due to the heavy traffic and at the same time pushed it onto a 7.5-ton truck. The vehicles eventually turned sideways and were now also blocking the lane in the direction of regensburg.
Property damage in the amount of approx. 50.000 euros, no one was injured.
The road remained completely closed during the recovery work. Traffic backed up for several kilometers to the furth/erlangen interchange.
